Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world

Updated: Jul 13



The state of affairs that our nation finds itself in is a great cause of concern for many Americans. The key to real change is through education. Prejudice comes from ignorance that is passed on generationally, both at home, in schools, and in society at large. We started the conversation on how we can use education for the better in 2019 when we began our journey to become the first Peace Mala Accredited school in the U.S. We received our accreditation in early 2020, though our journey will not stop there. We will continue to teach the shared history of all of our students.


If we are to build a better world, the message of peace must sound the strongest among our children, because they truly are our future.

Onward together,


Mrs. Yahayra Marte, President

Ms. Shellnisha Franklin, Principal

Mr. Levi Connolly, Assistant Principal
